LowCost Cafe

So before I begin, let me just get something straighten out first okay. No… the food and drinks available within the eatery were not priced at a ‘low cost’ but instead can be considered as very reasonable. The outlet that I’ve visited recently was their Muhibbah Square branch (as oppose to their main branch at Taman Sawit, Balung), yet another new commercial area along Jalan Muhibbah and located right in front of G-Mart Supermarket. 

Since me and my mom were checking out the somewhat newly opened supermarket within said commercial area (since it’s not that far from where we live), we got hungry and decided to dropped by for a quick lunch. I was told by a colleague that the cook was a Thai national so I wasted no time in trying out their White Tom Yam, couple with some Nasi Goreng Lalap (my go-to dish) as well as Sweet & Sour Chicken Rice for my mom. Portioning for the food listed was on the smaller side (befitting the ‘reasonable prices’ that I’ve mentioned) but still pretty sufficient and was actually quite delicious. I like the fact that their tom yam was not too spicy and has a nice fragrance to it. The sour taste was also nicely done and just tickles my tongue into emptying said dish. A few weeks after that, we'd dropped by again and this time we'd ordered their Nasi Goreng Pataya and Fried Mee Hoon and both were satisfactory but not that memorable I'm afraid. 

On a side note…

Food – 4/5 (surprisingly pretty good – giving them thumbs up for this)
Price – 3/5 (very reasonable indeed)
Service – 2/5 (note to said eatery – I would appreciate it if the waitress did not act all condescending towards the customers)
D├ęcor – 3/5 (very hip and laid-back but the wooden seats does feel a bit uncomfortable to sit in)
Location – 3/5 (they’re at the far end of the commercial area)

** Current status – Still in operation (as of December 2017)
